O God of Mercy! Hearken Now ~ Hymn

O God of Mercy! Hearken Now

O God of mercy! hearken now
Before Thy throne we humbly bow;
With heart and voice to Thee we cry
For all on earth who suffering lie.

We seek Thee where Thou dwell’st on high;
Beyond the glittering, starry sky:
We find Thee where Thou dwell’st below
Beside the beds of want and woe.

O let the healing waters spring,
Touched by Thy pitying angel’s wing;
With quick’ning pow’r new strength impart
To palsied will, to withered heart.

Where poverty in pain must lie,
Where little suffering children cry,
Bid us haste forth as called by Thee,
And in Thy poor Thyself to see.

Words: Emily V. Clark, 1891

  1. O let the healing waters spring,
    Touched by Thy pitying angel’s wing;
    With quick’ning pow’r new strength impart
    To palsied will, to withered heart.

    Amen…

  2. Thank you for sharing these Words of compassion and hope. May we all pray along with the eloquent words of this hymn for those suffering in Haiti and in other parts of the world.
